old woman with wrinkled face sitting on monastery doorstep at ladakh

ladakh, india | 2010


after seeing the chanting of the monks at the hemis monastery we stepped out and decided to wait a little longer at the doorstep. as we sat down we saw this beautiful woman sitting on the ledge at the entrance to the hall. the wrinkled lines on her face almost seemed equal to her age – like the rings on a tree trunk.
and while these thoughts were running through my mind she gave me this beautiful sweet smile !
